Medion Akoya EX Laptop computer



I have a Medion Akoya EX Laptop comptuer that I love. I have used this computer for quite some time now, but have been living with a recent problem.


The computer will not boot up or run on battery power alone.


There is a orange flashing light that indicates a problem with the battery. Before this light started flashing, I would get approx 2.5 hrs battery time with the computer.


I know that the battery is fine and that the computer is charging it. Due to my fully discharging the battery with a 12 volt light (took 3 days to die), and then putting it to charge. The funny thing is, when it started to charge it, the computer went through the light color schemes red, green, then started flashing orange again.


I have full use of the computer with or without the battery installed. I would love to get moblie again with my laptop, and would greatly appreciate any input you may bequeath.


Thank you and God bless.

Re: Medion Akoya EX Laptop computer

It sounds to me like some of the cells in the battery has collapsed.

A 12 volt light doesn't use as much juice on the battery as when you boot up. When Mobo, Monitor, Harddrive etc etc. start up they all use a large start-up-current and if the battery cant sustain the amount of amp. they all need together, nothing happens.

This is called shadow-charge, the battery seems fine, but when it really needs to put out some power it collapses.

I think you should try to sniff up another battery and see if this one has the same problem.

Or perhaps investigate wether or not you still have some warranty left on the battery, to try to get a free replacement.

Usually this is caused by the Compact Fluorescent Tubes that run down the back of the screen, or the inverter that powers them.

If you are really confident, you might be able to but replacement CCFL's and inverters on ebay and install them or you could take the machine to a professional and them do it.

Alternatively if you use your laptop at a desk, you could simply plug it in to a monitor and use it like that.

I hope that helps, if you have any further problems, please add them ass comments to this question. If I have been able to answer your question (or not) please click on one of the ratings buttons to let everyone know how I did.
Thanks for your feedback, and good luck.

Your best solution would be to go to and run their computer scanner which will identify your computer and tell you exactly what capacity you can have, what you have currently, and what type of memory (speed, capacity per dimm, etc). This should answer your question. You can then purchase more memory for your laptop if it can take more than you already have in it.

Hi, the only reliable place I know of to get any driver upgrades is from the computer manufacturers web site. If you google the brand name of your laptop and click on downloads, locate your model and see what is listed. Regards mistyman

Laptop crashes shortly after boot, power light rapidly blinks red.

Its late, so just to make sure I'm not brain-dead basically your laptop runs fine as long as its powered by the AC adaptor but dies fairly quickly while running via battery. This is very typical of a battery that will no longer hold a charge, not normally a user repairable item. It could also be that the charging electronics (in the laptop) isn't charging the battery, again not a typical user repair job. About your only option short of taking it to the repair shop is buying or borrowing a battery as a test.
